"Defending those who defend you"
Thomas is a second-year double-degree student in Law and Global Affairs. Formerly from the 23rd Division of the Singapore Artillery, he had witnessed the ups and downs of the military justice system. It often puzzles him how most servicemen know little about the most basic aspects of the military law until they are staring in the face of a charge. Thomas believes that students can play an active role to keep informed of the every-changing role of military law, to help those serving know more about their rights and the system itself.
Thomas is the incumbent Head of the MJP.

Sathya is a Year 2 student at the NUS Faculty of Law. He takes great interest in developments within the military legal system. Having served his National Service at the Detention Barracks, he had the oppportunity to interact with detainees and witness court martials which exposed him to some of its fundamental flaws, among them the detainees' lack of awareness of military law and the difficulties defending officers face in defending servicemen. In joining MJP, he hopes to raise awareness of the military legal system amongst the public, educate servicemen about the system and their rights and assist defending officers where possible.
Sathya is currently in-charge of MJP's military law Headnotes division.

Together with the MJP team, he aims to improve accessibility and understandability of Military Law.
